A Rare Catch! Snook in Jacksonville
April 2016 - Rustin Murray, a seasoned angler, caught this snook from shore in Jacksonville. Rustin says "the last snook I heard of being caught in Jacksonville was in 2012. That is that the fish was reported being caught. We catch trout up here the way you guys catch snook in south Florida. He hit my hard bait so hard that I thought it was a redfish. The trout's mouth is a lot softer than the snooks. It's a lot harder to catch the big trout the way you guys catch the big snook. So you can say I'm way jealous. Really the only reason I submitted the picture is because of the location we caught it in Northern Florida. It is very rare to catch one up here. Hopefully that means the water is warming up nicely. Most of them died off up here in 1989 with a hard freeze. They were floating up on the beach is everywhere here back then and then again in 2010. Lord knows I was not proud of the size of the fish only the species." See more images of this catch on our Snook webpage.
